We have included this term to ensure you get the best possible service and will not be disappointed and have to be refunded if an item is not in stock. Furthermore it protects us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing or we can no longer supply a particular product. In the case of a change of price we will always contact you first to ensure you are happy with this change; however changes of price will be a rarity.
We will confirm the acceptance of your order by email if you have provided us with a valid email address. We reserve the right at all time to refuse to accept any orders.

Please note: All fabric is checked for faults before despatch.
All information provided on the products follow the manufactures guidelines. We have done our best to ensure all images reflect product quality and colour as accurately as possible. Due to monitor display, dye lots and resolution, however, we cannot guarantee that the colour of the product will match exactly as the one you will receive. They will, in this regard, not form part of the contract or warranty pertaining to differences on receipt of products.
Do not try to colour match any item on the website, please contact the shop by phone to seek advice before purchase.
You may order samples of fabric from the shop directly on 01442 245383.
Limitation of Liability
Needlecraft cannot be liable for any loss of profit, contract, revenue, savings or any special, indirect or consequential damages arising out of or in connection to these terms and conditions. We have no liability for negligence for the acts of providers of telecommunications services for faults or failures in their networks or equipment.
We do recommend that fabric is pre-washed on a warm, gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Please read the descriptions on the products carefully, however, to see how to wash individual fabrics. If the product description does not contain washing instructions please call the shop to confirm. If the fabric is brightly coloured or very dark then it is most important. Please take care when ordering as fabrics can shrink and take account of this when measuring for projects. Fabrics with any wool content should be washed as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Wool Ordering/Washing Made up Garment
When ordering wool, make sure you allow enough yardage to make the garment. Check ball bands for dye lots (which should be the same) and washing instructions.
